Seamless in bed with Grubhub: What does it means for you?

Posted on May 26, 2013 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

The press is awash with the buzz about the two big portal players getting bigger by merginging together. Of course bloggers and talking heads rattle off eye popping numbers (daily online orders / profitability / immense value and so on) meant to impress the reader and give an impression that life will never be the same again. “Bigger is better” is a “easy to sell” message, which is valuable for press. But bigger is better for who? Haven’t we seen this movie before? Lets see: big banks, big…

Web Strategy: Most Important is Often the Simplest….

Posted on January 24, 2010 at 7:43pm 0 Comments

Online ordering is critical and nothing can over state the importance, particularly if you are interested in catering to the coming generations. Over the last 12-18 months, we have observed a growing number of restaurant operators who find themselves in a sticky situation. Many “Restaurant Operators do not OWN their URL”. This is a disaster and operators need to understand the importance of it, if they are remotely interested in safeguarding their brand and/or existence on the… Continue

Web Strategy: Are you a smart operator in the new world of online orders?

Posted on May 21, 2008 at 12:31pm 0 Comments

Recently an online portal pitched something similar to the following offer:



“Give 20% discount to online orders coming from our portal and we’ll promote your restaurant to 70,000+ of our customers”.



As a restaurant owner, you:



a) Sign-up (what’s there to lose?)

b) Ignore the promotion because you already get PLENTY of orders from the portal

c) Ignore the promotion because you get VERY FEW orders from the portal

d) Wonder what the right… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
